Re: Book of Sudoku

I swear I did not mean to but my grandson (3) got hold of a crayon and a library book and you can imagine the result and yes indeed I felt like a criminal for letting that happen....it wasn't even a GOOD book!

I hate when that happens. The spine is a finicky thing when overbent upside down instead of using a bookmark and remembers the strain by giving up pages without your consent. Books fall open in puddles, when my arms are full and then get all crinkled drying and never look pristine again.

Sara, I'm like you when it comes to books. However, with puzzle books like Sudokou, I have torn out pages and bent spines. Once I complete the puzzle, I'm not going to go back and redo it, unlike books which I reread.

I've always loved books and have tried to care for them, but I have been known to dog-ear the corners in a fit of desperation! Drives me nuts!
LuAnn Morgan 11:05am March 7, 2009)

Sorry, but in this case a book by any other name was not a book. It was a puzzle book, and once a puzzle is done, you can't share it, or redo it.
Therefore tearing the pages, cracking the spine, eating while puzzling the answers is not anywhere close to mistreating a great or in some cases not so
great work of fiction.

I read in the bathtub. (I bet you know where this is going.) I had just brought home a new library book, ran a tub full of bubbles, poured a glass of wine and got in to read. Next thing I knew, I was waking up in cold water with a very wet book. I took the book back to the library, confessed and paid for the book. They thought my story was so funny they asked if they could put it in their newsletter.

I have been known to dog ear a book, read in the bathtub, and crack the spine. I confess I'm not perfect when it comes to books. But I can say, I haven't been dog earring any books due to some kind authors sending me bookmarks. Have a great day.

I work in a small library and you
wouldn't believe what happens to
books. We had one returned with a
piece of baloney in it for a bookmark.
Books come back with split spines
after only one use. I had one lady tell
me the first thing she does with a new
book is to open it and bend it back so
the covers meet. I lost four teen
books in one week. One girl brought 2
books in soaking wet with no
explanation. A boy brought in two
books with the spines broken and
pages ripped out. What really hurt
was it was the first time each book
had been checked out. It is true they
don't make books like they used to,
but people need to be more careful. It
is really sad that most people don't
care and give you a hard time about
replacing the book. Most don't realize
how poorly funded most libraries are.

I am so glad to find out that I'm not
the only one so obsessive about
books! I read magazines, not books
when I eat, because they will stay open
and flat, and when I accidentally bend
the cover of a book I feel so bad! You
often can't tell whether I have read a
book or not by looking at it!
Kimberly Bea 9:37pm March 8, 2009)

I've put books in yard sales and people have asked whether I've even read them. I'm glad I'm not alone in treating books like feeling creatures who deserve kindness. My great-grandfather came from Sweden with a love for books and learning that he passed on, so in that sense he still lives.
Jean Rowell 10:02am March 9, 2009)

Loaned one out. You never get them back!
Kelli Jo Calvert 10:52am March 9, 2009)

LOL..Oh good I am not the only crazy person out there. I would give people bookmarks with a warning if my book did not come back in the same shape they would never..I mean never get to borrow another one. The thought of seeing dog ears or writing in a book even if I was supposed to made me cringe. In college many years ago..my teacher required us to write notes in our book or we would flunk the class. I finally after 30+ years gave the book away. But before that time I would just break into a sweat when I would open it.:)
The puzzles books I feel the same way as Sara; I used to just make a copy of the page so I wouldn't have to write in it..But now I am up there in years and like everyone here just do it and throw it away real fast. Still cringing. But Sara the sky has not fallen down; just might feel that way to us:) Think you can handle it (maybe) take 2 asprin and call me in the morning if you can't..lol
